Top of Iowa All-Conference teams announced

The Top of Iowa Conference released its postseason volleyball awards, including first,  second and honorable mention teams, player of the year and coach of the year.

Both the Lake Mills and Northwood-Kensett teams had multiple athletes named to the list.

Split into East and West divisions, Lake Mills and Northwood-Kensett competed in separate divisions.

In the West, the Bulldogs had a host of players named to the teams and individual awards.

Seniors Jessa Gasteiger and Kylie Greenfield earned co-Players of the year and Jim Boehmer was named Coach of the Year.

Gasteiger led the conference in ace serves with 47 and ace serves per set with 1.81. She was second in assists per set with 8.54.

Greenfield dominated at the net this season, leading the conference in kill efficiency (.303), kills (104) and kills per set (4.00).

Since the award for Player of the Year started in 2008, a Lake Mills player has received the award in all but three years. This also marks the first time two players have been named co-Players of the Year.

Gasteiger and Greenfield also made the All-Conference first team alongside senior Megan Groe.

Seniors Hope Levine and Olivia Moen were named to the second team and MaKenna Hanson was named an honorable mention.
